Medical Physics and Biomedical Engineering


Postgraduate Taught

Our postgraduate taught MSc programmes are offered both as a traditional on-campus course (usually studied either full-time over a period of one year or part-time over two years) and via distance-learning (students choosing this route may study flexibly for up to five years).

Students are able to specialise in Radiation Physics, Biomedical Engineering and Medical Image Computing. The MSc programmes are also available as a Postgraduate Diploma or Postgraduate Certification.
